    I'm taking exams this year and I'm really trying to revise enough to get the best grades, but at the same time I'm trying to get into the orchestral music scene (there's a phrase you don't hear a lot...). I have rehearsals until ten several nights a week and I go to a music school on Saturdays in London which requires me to leave the house at half 6 in the morning only to run home and do concerts until ten later in the day. Any ideas on how to cope with stress when you're scared that it's all a waste of time?

    Lmao. I thought this thread was a general question as to how we deal, not asking for advice.

    I just shutdown and do nothing. And then, right at the last minute, the pressure makes me do everything at once. :woo:

    My advice? Don't do that.

    As above, I'd say listening to good music, being organised, so all your work is neat and easy to access.

    I like to make to do lists, so I know exactly what needs to be done, and when by.

    Also, there is a TSR thread by the fabulous Anon_98 that helps everyone be all productive and knuckle down on revision. I use it for homework, you could use it for anything you want to get done. You can find a link here.

    Mostly, to try to avoid stress, manage your time, and allocate all the stuff you need to do in time slots,making sure you have times for breaks and rest, so you don't get too overwhelmed. I've also just made a study planner, to make sure I get stuff done at any time before 23:00 (see why I don't want you to be like me? Doing work at 23:00 is exhausting )

    Good luck!
